Seeking a home away from home?
Travelers looking to rest their heads in Philadelphia for more than a brief stay now have yet another new option: ROOST Apartment Hotel has opened a second location in Philadelphia with a hip property in Rittenhouse Square.
Last year, ROOST launched right here in Philadelphia with its first extended-stay property housed in the historic Packard Building on 15th and Walnut streets.
Now, the Philadelphia-based hotelier — that Forbes says is “taking the best from AirBnB and boutiques and creating a new type of hotel” — has debuted its second location: ROOST Rittenhouse.
Situated in the tony Rittenhouse Square neighborhood, the new ROOST maintains the model of transforming a historic building into a haven for weary, long-term travelers with the amenities of luxury apartments and all the services of boutique hotels — think a 24-hour lobby lounge and a (soon-to-open) cafe, bar and restaurant.
The 24 residences at the contemporary extended-stay property makes for a great alternative home base for visitors with a longer trip, offering nicely appointed studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments, as well as two penthouse suites.
Thanks to its super central location and boutique-hotel amenities, ROOST could make for great digs while settling in to make Philadelphia home.
